Typical Hard day at Work

Hi everyone!



It’s been soo sooo hard to get a minute lately. In the week, we have back to back work assignments that never end and over the weekend I wake up towards the afternoon because I’m convinced that if I don’t, then I’ll forget what sleep is like and that can never happen. On one hand I also feel that in order to work full time and grow my channel this year I’ll need to give up sleeping longer but my oh so amazing job requires additional energy and I really to recharge otherwise the burn out will be oh so real.

Side note: I’ve said oh so too many times.

Instead of complaining about it, I’ve become more invested because this is my last year(finally) and I really need to get this period of my life over with. I also know that it’s bad to say that because I should always be in pursuit of happiness but I don’t have the trust fund and high risk personality to do so. So I go through the motions and it can get really dark. Today will just be of a typical day. You know how people hate Mondays? The last 3 years have been permanent Mondays.

Typically in the morning I spend an hour snoozing my alarm which actually makes me more tired in the end because my body goes in and out of consciousness and by the time I wake up everything is still slow and I'm extra tired.

These days I make my coffee at home to stop spending money on coffee at work. Which has really helped because it makes me feel full till around 11am. In future it would be ideal to exchange this for a filling smoothie as soon as I have the blender of my dreams!!

On a really slow day I already start feeling down around just before 11am. I wish it was something I could control. At this time I’ve probably been sitting for 3 hours doing something really mindless while everyone talks about breaking political news which is the worst kind of news.

By 1pm or even an hour before that I’m already out of the office to breathe in all the fresh air I can first come into contact with and then all of the available air. Sometimes I would go to lunch by myself just to disconnect and plan my blog or my channel or sometimes I would invite a friend.

Then it’s the race for 5pm – I actually get the most work done during this time because I guess it has a reward of going home! It’s also when the office is the quietest because people are either trying to stay awake after a massive lunch or they need to chase a 5pm deadline so that they don't work overtime that they will later not be allowed to take leave for (unfortunately on a learnership you can't get a labour law lawyer to defend you).

I am probably first out the door at 4:58pm because I need to get to my safe place. I sometimes take work home and then I never do it until the following morning so that I can remain productive when I’m at work because I’m normally the first person to get there!

As soon as I get home my first priority is to do some breathing exercises (when I’m too stressed) or to take off my work clothes and get comfy to study(when my heart rate is normal) or to prepare a soothing candle-lit bath(when everything is on fire).


Today has been a fire day. And it’s all my spheres. Family. Work. Finances. Studies. Insomnia. Bad Diet. Productivity.

But in an hour I can close my eyes and forget about it and try to fix it one at a time!

It's 9pm.

Almost Bed Time.

Valentine's Day Lust List

Hi everyone!!

These days I wake up at 5. I’ll repeat: 5 AM!! I literally hate and love myself simultaneously because I hate waking up early and I struggle to sleep early. I also love it because I’m hoping it will make me get more things done and also make me more effective. Things at work are moving at an uncontrollable pace and it’s just harder to do extra things because I’m normally too tired to even make myself supper! On the brighter side – I hope that comes with some weightloss!

So Valentine’s Day is 2 days away and I’ve clearly missed the vibe like crazy! Also wanted to create a lookbook but the last date I remember other than yesterday is the 3rd of January when I started working again. So I bring you my ultimate wish list! I loooooove Boohoo.com. I feel like they just keep up with trends and everything has this sex appeal to it and they have so many categories for different types of girls and for every occasion!

This year I’m obsessed with high slits. You’ll see that it’s almost on the same trend as last year’s wish list. But this year I just think high slits gives you that extra sexy spice to your outfit without you trying too hard. I also believe it’s appropriate for every type of girl! I’ve also been into just minor details at the top to highlight your bone structure. My boobs are small so I like it when the top has cute details that also takes that into account! The chest area should definitely not be neglected!

How gorgeous are these?


1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6

I'm so over red this year. This blush/rose tone is absolutely gorgeous and I think it will look good on any skin tone! I love the simplicity and subtle sexy element and I think anyone would love so hot in any of these options!!

😍😍😍

Are you digging these or what?


It can definitely be seen as over the top but this selection is for those romantic late night dates where you really need to bring your A game!

I hope you like them!

Love,

Valentine's Day Gifts for Him

Hi everyone!!


This year I’m getting started on the love air a little late mostly because January was basically my melting pot. I’m actually half glad that I didn’t set resolutions/goals because things started off on quite a bad foot. Like WW3 bad. And to be honest I’m kind of glad it happened because I taught me that I’m equipped to take care of myself!

So now in February I definitely don’t want to miss out on the love fever! So because it’s a brand new year I thought I would do another gift guide because last year’s one was quite popular! I will not be doing date ideas because I would probably do one of the other things I’ve already mentioned! Lol, I know. Creature of habit! So today we’ll be looking for amazing gifts available right now!

You guys know I’m all over Takealot.com. I bought my books there recently and I loved their delivery and correspondence. I also bought the wrong product and they handled the return/exchange effectively well! I actually wanted to get a blender this year so that would have been a great way to see how they handle electronics as that will be the majority of gift ideas covered in this post!

Whether we’re guys/girls we all need the same kind of things so you don’t always have to get man stuff. Some guys can live on the bare minimal. But every now and again they want to have a hot beverage but thought they never needed a kettle. So now our gifts will fill those loopholes!!

(images from Takealot.com)

1.       My friend recently bought himself this kettle and he wanted to tell me about it every day. I guess the red light sort of gives it that extra that other kettles don’t do! The ones from Mellerware are super affordable and you can later add to the range with other appliances. You can get in blue or red!
2.       I’ve been trying to get a Nutribullet blender ever since I was born! So I’m not sure if I’ll get him this before I get one. So that just makes one of us!! This is the perfect gift for those guys who like experimenting with differently healthy smoothies to cute cocktails!!
3.       I found this to be super duper cute! These days you use your laptop and phone simultaneously so it’s super annoying to have to pick it up to type something so this stand will make his life so much easier!!
4.       Now for the things that only benefits him(LOL) we can always rely on the man side of the catalogue! I think this portablevacuum can be handy when a guy likes to be clean and also likes it if his car is clean! I think it’s one of those things that are overlooked until it’s needed! But lucky for him, you’ve thought about everything!
5.       Most guys love to braai but It’s never really something they think about when they are loaded! So to take this one task off his shoulder you could totally get him this very simple and easy to store and navigate gas braai. Now consider all your weekend lunches covered!
6.  And how can I forget the guys who love music!! There's so much hype with everything Beats so these wireless headphones could be a cool addition to his music accessories (if he doesn't have it already!) I liked the blue one but there's also other colours that can suit his personality! It can also be paired to his device and has a 12 hour rechargeable battery - which guy would say no to that?!

Do you see something he'd like? 

I hope you guys can find something in my top picks!!
